“The MRT network’s newest station will open for service on its oldest line today, with new features that are friendlier to commuters and the environment.
Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan said yesterday afternoon that Canberra station on the 30-year-old North-South Line (NSL) is the network’s 139th station.
He said more than 17,000 households are within a 10-minute walk of the new station. From there, they can reach Marina Bay in 30 minutes.
The minister said the elevated station is the first where residents connect directly to the ticketing platform from an overhead bridge. The bridge is lined with shops and connected to Canberra Plaza at the other end.
Mr Khaw noted that Canberra station – which is between Sembawang and Yishun stations – is the first MRT station to be awarded the highest Platinum rating for the Building and Construction Authority’s Green Mark for Transit Stations.”
